A bright, freshly decorated and well equipped and historic cottage with good parking and very close to everything you need in Kirkcudbright.
There is plenty of room in this three floor cottage with large kitchen with everything you need to cook for your self. The bedrooms are a big with a spacious main bathroom - again everything bright and of good quality. We would have liked more than two dinning chairs so we couldn't all sit at the table but hopefully that can be fixed?
We visited during a great spell of weather and enjoyed the gardens - each property has a section of garden but in effect it is mostly shared. The Yellow Door section of garden was nice to sit in, but the larger section of the garden owned by 'Greengate' is a quirky, arty and (slightly spooky for our 3 year old) adventure.
Kirkcudbright and the surrounding area had a lot to offer, Broughton House & Garden were beautiful, Threave gardens were nice (the castle was closed), but avoid Galloway Wildlife Park! For those with children the nearby Cocoa Bean Company and Cream O' Galloway are good value.
Couldn't recommend this place enough, we had a great time and if you do stay here there is a good little book “Tales of the Kirkcudbright Artists” which is worth a read and helps you appreciate the history of Yellow Door and the others in this close.

Yellow Door is a beautifully restored, characterful and comfortable cottage. I booked this cottage as a birthday treat for my mother and it certainly has lived up to all our expectations. The cottage had everything we needed for our week long stay. We have enjoyed the wood burning stove, modern conveniences and the patio area at the end of the lane. A perfect location within walking distance of cafes, galleries and shops. We have had a great stay and would highly recommend. Thank you Neil and Patricia for a warm welcome and great stay.
